Summary - Curve driven pattern

Topaz II

Summary - Curve driven pattern

Well, the consensus seems to be that the pattern leader must be
coincident with the origin of the curve.  So in my case, that would mean
redefining the curve to divide the top segment and place the origin
where my first hole is.  That seems to make sense, although it's a
frustrating limitation and the results are unexpected.  I didn't test it
because after sending this I decided that even hole spacing wouldn't fit
my application after all so the pattern didn't make sense anymore.



Several folks suggested that I needed to first create a datum point on
the curve, pattern the point then create my sketch anchored to only that
point and pattern the cut as a reference pattern to the point pattern.
I did try that, but the point patterns just like the cut - shifted to
the right by the same offset as the pattern leader.



Thanks everyone,

Any sketch orientation datums should be contrained to that point as
well.
